Breaking the Line: 1967’s Transformation Orange Blossom Classic Football Game

This program is shorter due to our fundraising efforts.

12/09/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents looks at the impact of the 1967 Orange Blossom Classic football game in Miami between black football powers Florida A&M and Grambling Universities.  There were more implications than just a football title.  We’ll visit with Columbia University journalism professor Samuel Freedman, who’s written BREAKING THE LINE:  The Season in Black College Football That Transformed the Sport and Changed the Course of Civil Rights. That’s Topical Currents Monday at 1pm.
